Cloud Security

about-us-section-divider

Cloud computing is a technology that provides storage on a computer’s hard drive, which allows a user to access or process the data anytime, anywhere, and on any machine. This technology became ubiquitous because it is simple to use and provided a convenient way to share information.

Cloud-computing security refers to the methodologies and frameworks to secure the data, applications, and infrastructure of cloud computing.

Why do you need cloud security?

Cloud computing is a technology that provides storage on a computer’s hard drive, which allows a user to access or process the data anytime, anywhere, and on any machine. This technology became ubiquitous because it is simple to use and provided a convenient way to share information.

EGS Approach

Cloud security planning and risk assessment:

  • Assessment of the application portfolio to select applications suitable for cloud migration
  • Impact to regulatory compliance, such as SOX and HIPAA
  • Impact to data privacy and protection standards, as well as data location/segregation standards
  • Impact to organization’s security posture and likelihood of increased vulnerabilities

Strategy for cloud security migration:

  • Evaluate vendor capabilities, mapped to requirements, with financial benefits
  • Assessment of cloud computing provider’s security capabilities, control, and monitoring
  • Assess tax implications and evaluate strategic alternatives
  • Define cloud computing architecture, migration, and operations plan
  • Create processes to integrate cloud computing into security framework

Assist with implementation of cloud security:

  • Assist to conduct cloud Proof Of Concepts (POC) and pilots to mitigate risk
  • Assist with installation, configuration, testing, migration, and operational transition

Continuous monitoring:

  • Periodic security activities for cloud-related components to evaluate for vulnerabilities
  • Log review
  • Monitor audits results
  • Monitor and remediate vulnerabilities
